ummm i dont think u can get a 7970m...now on a laptop...for $1200

lol


My point is do you need a 7970 at all, let alone two? Graphics cards age fast. If you split that $1,200 over two laptops, the second in 1-2 years, you are likely to yield notably better performance in the future for the tradeoff of slightly lower performance today. Two 7970m's seems total overkill, unless you need to play the most demanding games maxed out at insane resolutions today.

I know thinking conservatively on this board is asking for people to get angry, but the reality of the situation is that it just makes more sense.

There really is no need for a 7970m if its going to become outdated in 2-3 years. A 670m is weaker but still useful. You probably will be able to buy a laptop with a 7970m in 2 years at $1200. Alienware is overpriced, go to Xoticpc.com.

Wat? What are you reading that gives you the impression he doesn't? In regards to his first post, he says go to dell(ie alienware) to check the price of the dual 7970m.

I was on your side until you made this idiotic analogy again. Getting a Sager isn't analogous to buying a toyota or honda. More like a Corvette ZR1or Mustang GT 500.

Wow comparing a car to a gaming laptop. Your money, do whatever you want.

np9170
$1521.93 with an 7970m

and if i add the discounts dell gave me+another 7970m
$200 card
$120 5% card
$80backpack
$200 extra 7970m card
and i "heard" customer service is bad
this is roughly $400 savings right there.
---------------------
so around $450$ cause of alienware branding, and sli performance

all things devalue over time.

Alright let's be rude to posters offering solid advice, and ignore scales of value in the obvious differences between a car and computer for the sake of justifying a stupid purchase.

Buy the damn thing then, I don't care. I've bought my fair share of stupid unnecessary **** too, we all have. But if you aren't going to actually take any advice without getting snarky, what is the point of this topic? To let everyone know you will have a dual GPU laptop? Grats.
